The UK's Press Association released 100 new photographs to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War on November 11, 1918. The selection originally consisted of fading black and white images. They were carefully recreated to provide us with a clearer idea of what happened in and after the War, which killed nine million people. The photographs show wounded soldiers, prisoners of war, fighting in the trenches, and scenes in London the day after the war ended. One photo shows a soldier having a haircut in a makeshift barbershop on the Albanian front.

A UK-based photo colouriser, Tom Marshall, said he wanted to do something special to commemorate the 100-year anniversary, which was called "the war to end all wars". He began the project in 2014, which coincided with the centenary of the outbreak of WW1. He said he wanted to, "mark the centenary of the end of the First World War...in tribute to the men and women who lived through the war, and those who lost their lives." He added: "I included men and women of several nationalities, races and religions, as the entire world was affected by the war."
